PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia board chairman Risto Siilasmaa went on a Finnish television show, and stated that while he is confident in Windows Phone 8, the company does have a back-up plan if it doesn't work out. Speculation aplenty - what is this backup plan? The answer's pretty easy, if you ask me.

If they license and release an Android phone it could invalidate future lawsuits against Android using Nokia patents.

Android is not licensed under GPLv3. They can offer Android AND sue competitors without any problem.

It is the same as SCO

SCO never lost its rights to ship GPL software. Afaik they even did on there Unix till they became a pure suing-company.

It doesn't apply to hardware patents

It doesn't apply at all.
